Synyster Gates remembers first gig: "I turned bright orange-green like an Oompa Loompa"

Synyster Gates remembers first gig:



"I remember the first show, I really wasn't nervous at all. The worst part about the first show wasn't nerves, it was the fact I was going to paint my face–like a Wes Borland thing with a weird painted face the whole time. I don't know why, that is horrifying. But once my face was painted, I quickly realized, a shiver went up my spine, that this was a really bad idea. I tried to take the paint off, but I turned bright orange-green like an Oompa Loompa and we couldn't get it off. But I went up there, and that was the only thing I was embarrassed about–an odd tone to my skin color. It was pretty ridiculous."
